One-Liner Wednesday – #1linerweds

“The end of term is nearing… Blooming Marvellous!”


Excuse the back scratcher, cap and card in the background lol!

It is less than four weeks until we finally break up for the summer holidays. The days are crawling by, but filled with all sorts; data, home visits, reports, preparations for the next year, alongside teaching our current classes.

It is always hard to say goodbye to your class. Yes, even the tough ones end up with a little spot in your heart! But when they up and leave before you’re ready to let them go, that can be a little tougher!

We lost one pupil as he was moving to another part of the country a few months back. That was bad enough. Then one went to India on an unexpected trip which he still hasn’t returned from. Not even a chance to say goodbye! Another had to go back to the Motherland due to family issues so we bid another sad farewell…

And last week we were informed that yet another was leaving us early as she had to go with her mum back to their home country to sort out passport issues before she started big school in September. Such a lovely little thing, and she wasn’t even going to be staying at our school, due to family living too far from us.

Monday was full of misty-eyed hugs, and her mother kindly gave us each a bunch of beautiful flowers.

End of year is a wonderful time, seeing how much your class have grown, physically, academically and emotionally, especially at this tender age, but it’s always just a little hard to let go!

Of course, the lovely gifts and cards we get, help to soften the blow! πŸ˜‰

For Linda’s One-Liner Wednesday challenge!

How do I always manage to make one line into a full blown post, lol! Seriously? I can’t shut up, sorry Peeps!

    Gorgeous flowers Sis. It must be hard as you do grow attached to people you spend so much time with, and children always seem to linger in our hearts πŸ™‚

    A lovely heartfelt post, Ritu. You do get very attached to children, I got very fond of the kids in my Sunday School class and found it hard when I had to finish at the end of last year.

    I hear you, sis! That’s why I started writing books… lol! I feel with you and can imagine well how hard it is to have all those expected and unexpected farewells coming. Most of all this time you really had a great class! Simply the “same procedure as every year”… but never to get used to, right?
